Blue Moon follows a strict 4-pronged regimen for removing and controlling unwanted odors. We follow this regimen because it works and there is no better alternative.
Everyone knows you cannot eliminate odor without first removing the source. Spraying deodorizer might help mask the odor for a short period of time, but the odor will likely resurface once the deodorizer's scent has worn off and the source is reactivated. Blue Moon technicians begin any odor control assignment with a fiercely-determined search for the root cause of the smelly disturbance.
Blue Moon technicians are trained to physically remove and clean residues using proper, surface-appropriate washing agents and solvents. We are well-versed in addressing many different types of residues including nicotine residues, protein cook-down residues, and grease fire residues. At our disposal we have an army of different deodorizing chemical options, such as deodorant blocks, granules, dry solvent-based deodorants, registered disinfectants, enzyme deodorizers, ozone gas, and more. Our goal is to remedy the situation without causing secondary unintended harm or damage. We use whatever tool is best-called-for given the situation at hand.
Before Blue Moon's job is completed and our techs have departed your property, you want to feel confident that the odor wont resurface after we're gone. We seek to provide the assurance you need by re-creating the conditions that caused the odor in the first place. No, we don't throw a dead animal behind a wall, or pour a bucket-full of bodily fluid on your carpet. We try to replicate the atmospheric conditions that existed before you called us. For example, we might apply a heat source to the impacted surface as a test to see if the odor is reactivated. We have a number of tests and tools at our disposal, including appropriate counter-actants and deodorization equipment or applications to help reach effective penetration levels (ie: spray applications, fogging with water-based or dry solvent-based agents, oxidization with ozone or hydroxyl, and vapor diffusion). Before we leave your property, we seek to rest you assured that our treatment has worked.
If the results are limited after removing an odor source and cleansing the impacted surface area, then Blue Moon techs move onto sealing or encapsulating the impacted area using appropriate sealing agents (ie. clear alcohol-based shellacs and acrylic sealants).
